Playing with Fire: 5 Fun Kindle Fire Games for Kids

fire games for kindleWith the addition of FreeTime Unlimited, a service that provides kids with endless reading, game, movie and app time, complete with parental control settings, the Kindle Fire has become one of the most popular tablets on the market. But even if you choose to download apps individually, there are many free or affordable games available for children.

If you have a Kindle Fire tablet and are wondering which games to get for your kids, here are some recommended favorites:

1. Scribblenauts Remix ($0.99) —

This game offers hours of educational fun for less than a dollar. With 50 levels to play, Scribblenauts Remix challenges users to help the main character get the Starite by using words to create the objects needed to reach the next level.

Scribblenauts Remix is a great way to teach your children to think creatively by using adjectives and nouns to bring necessary items to life to solve challenges, as well as reinforcing proper spelling ability and vocabulary.

This is a great game for family fun time, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself playing Scribblenauts Remix along with your children.

2. Wubbzy’s Mash-Em Fun ($1.99) —

This game is akin to the classic arcade game commonly known as “whack-a-mole” and requires players to mash bots before the time runs out to score points. The main objective is to smash the hundreds of robo-chicks swarming Wuzzleburg by using a mallet, which is great for increasing hand-eye coordination in little ones.

Wubbzy’s Mash-Em Fun offers Mash mode for younger kids, which requires the player to score as many points as possible before the time runs out, and a more challenging Mega Mash mode for older children that requires a certain number of points to reach the next level, making this game a great choice for parents with multiple kids.

3. SUPER WHY! Kindle Tablet Edition ($2.99) —

If you are seeking an educational game for younger children, SUPER WHY! Kindle Tablet Edition is a wonderful way to teach literacy skills such as spelling, rhyming, reading, vocabulary, comprehension and writing.

Based on the popular PBS television show, kids play along with characters as they trace letters on the touch screen, select words that rhyme, complete a story, or write words to make objects appear.

Designed to comply with the critical skills recommended by the National Reading Panel for ages 2-6, SUPER WHY! Kindle Tablet Edition is a game you can feel good about.

4. My Little Pony (Free) —

The wicked Nightmare Moon has been released, spreading darkness across the land, and it’s up to players to save Ponyville! In the My Little Pony game for Kindle Fire, kids help the ponies bring sunshine back by winning quests and rebuilding the town.

With a focus on friendship and kindness, this game offers safe, non-violent challenges such as mini-games with different characters and the ability to decorate Ponyville. If your child is a fan of this classic show, this is a great just-for-fun game they will enjoy.

Note: As with many Kindle Fire games, be sure to disable in-app purchases by adjusting your settings to keep kids (and your wallet) out of trouble, because purchasing in-game items with real money is an option.

5. Fruit Ninja (Free) —

Would it be exciting to slice through assorted types of fruit while watching them explode into pieces for points? The makers of Fruit Ninja believe video game players will enjoy this activity, and considering that it is one of the most popular free games available, they seem to be right.

Fruit is sliced by swiping your finger across the screen, with a Zen mode offered if you’re looking for relaxed play and Classic or Arcade modes for those in the mood to compete, making this game fruit-smashing fun for all ages.

As you can see, some Kindle Fire tablet games are educational or good for building hand-eye coordination skills—and some are purely for entertainment—but no matter what type of amusement you’re seeking, there are plenty of games available that your kids will love.
